Please note the above pathways are not all definitive yet as we are waiting on clarification from certain trusts. They will also be subject to change as the COVID-19 situation evolves. The LOC will endeavour to update you directly by email when there is a significant change but you can also find the latest guidance on the professional tab of the website: https://www.staffsloc.co.uk/professional.phtml
